    Well, I have a sharps replica that is need of a trigger job. I just had to shop that did not have the experience with that type of rifle. They did not want to get into it, I appreciate their honesty about it.
    So, is there a smith in the Portland area that has the ability to work on these types of weapons?

    Give Burt Christopherson a call. 503-244-0305. He lives in SW Hillsdale, up near Wilson High School.
    Very good craftsman and reasonable rates. Works out of his basement, keeps his overhead low.

    I know I started this little over a year ago, never had the money or time, so other than Mr. Christopherson, any other smiths? I am going to give Mr. Christopherson a call today.
